After a long wait, Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Churuli is set to premiere on SonyLIV on November 19. The platform released a trailer announcing the same.
The film previously had a big-screen premiere during the last IFFK. Though there were speculations of it having a wide theatrical release, the makers have decided to opt for a direct-to-digital release instead.
Churuli, starring Vinay Forrt and Chemban Vinod Jose in the lead roles, is reportedly a mystery thriller with some science fiction elements. Joju George, Geethi Sangeetha, and Jaffer Idukki essay the other integral characters. S Hareesh scripted it based on a story by Vinoy Thomas.
It’s worth noting that S Hareesh has also scripted Lijo’s next film with Mammootty, titled Nanpakal Nerathu Mayakkam. Madhu Neelakandan lensed Churuli while Deepu Joseph edited it.
